RVP Honoured By Captaincy

Holland striker Robin van Persie admitted that he was flattered to be given the armband for the first time and confirmed that his selection as captain is for the long-term.

The Manchester United forward was named captain ahead of their 3-0 friendly win over Indonesia and he says that it is an honour for him to lead the national team.

"I'm very honoured with this," he told reporters. "On Monday the coach (Louis van Gaal) asked me if I wanted to be captain. It's very flattering so I accepted.

"This choice is not only for now but for a longer period."

Regarding their performance in the match, where an Arjen Robben strike and a Siem de Jong double took them to a 3-0 win, he added, "It was a tough match because of the heat and breathing was pretty heavy, but, with this in mind, we did very well, I think.

"You can't always put pressure on your opponent. We want to play our own game and sometimes you have to let the opponent come.

"The atmosphere was very nice. I've been in these countries before with my clubs and it's always nice to see all these people react so enthusiastically."
